Based on your answers it sounds as though there are aspects of your body that are significantly impacting your confidence and quality of life. Many individuals who visit our offices experience this lack of satisfaction due to a physical characteristic that they themselves are frustrated with – they come looking for help. Plastic surgery can help improve a feature and change the way you see yourself when you look in a mirror. That can instill more self-confidence. It is ideal for people who want to improve a feature that has been bothering them. It can take them to the next level when they are already on their way to turning their life around. Having a procedure done can also, often, be a motivator because once people see their physical improvement, they want to keep going and do more to look and feel better.
However, if you want to have cosmetic plastic surgery so that someone will like you more or feel different about you, all you are changing is what that person will see. It will not make someone fall in love with you, it will not make your marriage better, it will not make you enjoy your work more, and it will not make your life perfect. It does not change how others feel when they see you and it will not make someone feel that you are a more beautiful person on the inside—and ultimately, that is what lasts.
As you consider the options ahead, be honest with yourself about why you are looking for a change. Make sure you are addressing any other aspects in your life that could be more significant than the wrinkle, blemish, or other physical issue you want corrected. If you have any questions regarding the spectrum of cosmetic features available, don’t hesitate to reach out; we’d be happy to answer any questions you have and schedule a complimentary consultation to discuss your unique situation and desires.Contact Dr. Dennis Schimpf
